Call me Troy ( visu )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 115 libraries worldwide
A documentary about the life and times of Reverend Troy Perry, founder of the Metropolitan Community Chuch, the first church to recognize the spiritual needs of the gay community. He was also the first openly gay person to serve on the Los Angeles County Commission on Human Rights. In 1969, he performed the first public same-sex wedding in the United States and in 1970 he filed the first lawsuit seeking legal recognition for same-sex marriages. Perry has been on the forefront of the battle for gay rights
Yeats and Sligo by Kevin Connolly( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 81 libraries worldwide
Though Yeats was born in Sandymount in Dublin and spent little of his adult life in the environs of Sligo, the poet himself maintained that Sligo was the domain of his childhood and the landscape of his poetic imagination for much of his life. Kevin Connolly describes journeys through the Sligo landmarks that inspired Yeats
The porcupinity of the stars by Gary Barwin( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 77 libraries worldwide
In this much-anticipated new collection, poet and musician Gary Barwin both continues and extends the alchemical collision of language, imaginative flight and quiet beauty that have made him unique among contemporary poets. As the Utne Reader has noted, what makes this work 'so compelling is Barwin's balance of melancholy with wide-eyed wonder.' The Porcupinity of the Stars sees the always bemused and wistful poet reaching into new and deeper territory, addressing the joys and vagaries of perception in poems touching on family, loss, wonder, and the shifting, often perplexing nature of conscio
A complete encyclopedia of different types of people by Gabe Foreman( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 72 libraries worldwide
A Complete Encyclopedia of Different Types of People is not your average reference book. It turns a series of sociological case studies into a functional encyclopedia that doubles as an achingly funny collection of poems. "Bridesmaids," "Day Traders," and "Number Crunchers" are all dutifully cataloged in a series of luminously strange, compellingly original lyric and prose poems
Indexical elegies by Jon Paul Fiorentino( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 72 libraries worldwide
With links to intense poetic works like John Berryman's Dream Songs, Gilbert Sorrentino's Corrosive Sublimate and Erin Moure's Furious, Jon Paul Fiorentino's new collection is a whip-smart poetic investigation of anxiety in all its many manifestations. Anxiety caused by geography, anxieties of influence and looming worries about loss inform the poems as they weave narrative threads and associations that highlight both the treachery of language and its necessity in shaping human experience: 'All roads, side roads/all text, signage/All seasons, autumn/ all memories
Neighbour procedure by Rachel Zolf( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 68 libraries worldwide
"Rachel Zolf's powerful follow-up to the Trillium Award-winning Human Resources is a virtuoso polyvocal correspondence with the daily news, ancient scripture and contemporary theory that puts the ongoing conflict in Israel/Palestine firmly in the crosshairs. Plucked from a minefield of competing knowledges, media, and public texts, Neighbour Procedure sees Zolf assemble an arsenal of poetic procedures and words borrowed from a cast of unlikely neighbors, including Mark Twain, Dadaist Marcel Janco, blogger-poet Ron Silliman, and two women at the gym. The result is a dynamic constellation where humor and horror sit poised at the threshold of ethics and politics."--from publisher's description
Clockfire by Jonathan Ball( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 66 libraries worldwide
Talented newcomer Jonathan Ball's Clockfire is a suite of poetic blueprints for imaginary plays that would be impossible to produce - plays in which, for example, the director burns out the sun, actors murder their audience, and the laws of physics are flagrantly violated. The poems in one sense replace the need for drama, and are predicated on the idea that modern theatre lacks both 'clocks' and 'fire' and thus fails to offer its audiences immediate, violent engagement. They sometimes resemble the scores for Fluxus 'happenings, ' but they replace the casual aesthetic and DIY simplicity of Flux

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 64 libraries worldwide
Divide and rule by Walid Bitar( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 63 libraries worldwide
In Walid Bitar's fifth collection, the trauma of the West's invasion of and violent collision with the Arab world blows through these witty, wise, multi-referenced and caustic poems like a desert sandstorm, but Bitar's real battle is with the torment at the heart of human thought and language language - never at peace, at home nowhere, never sated
Asphalt cigar by Kevin Connolly( Book )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 60 libraries worldwide
The politics of knives by Jonathan Ball( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 58 libraries worldwide
Ball's poems of menace and horror promise to make him the Stephen King of verse
Croak by Jenny Sampirisi( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 55 libraries worldwide
It ain't easy being green: Croak is a poetic negotiation between a species in crisis and its many cultural markers
Match by Helen Guri( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 51 libraries worldwide
Robert Brand has given up on real women. Relationships just haven't ever worked out well for him. He has, however, found a (somewhat problematic) solution, a new feminine ideal: the 110-pound sex doll he ordered over the internet. Showing an uncanny access to the voice of the rejected, unimpressive, emotionally challenged modern male, Helen Guri's debut collection explores Robert's transition from lost and lonely to loved
The brave never write poetry by Daniel Jones( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 32 libraries worldwide
First published in 1985, when Daniel Jones was just twenty-six, The Brave Never Write Poetry, the poet/critic/novelist's lone collection of poems, was a cult hit, turning 'poetry' on its head before its author (then known simply as 'Jones') swore off verse entirely ... This long overdue revised edition brings Jones's unforgettable voice to a new generation of readers and includes the complete text of the original collection (including Jones' own sardonic assessments of his own poetry), a new preface by poet/critic Kevin Connolly, and postscript commentary from many of Jones' closest friends and literary colleagues. --Coach House Books
